Family owned and operated for more than 80 years, A.B. Hadley, Inc. has grown along with South Ogden since its founder first opened the doors in 1931. Born in 1912, Alonzo Brigham Hadley, also known as "Lon" or "A.B." in local circles, opened this business hoping to provide for his wife and growing family. Together they had several children, including son Boyd Hadley, who was born in 1941. Boyd started working in the repair shop and learning the trade in his early childhood, eventually taking over the business in 1970 a few years prior to Alonzo's passing.
The family tradition remains intact three generations later, with Boyd now retired and his son Chris working in the business. A.B. Hadley, Inc. is one of the oldest family businesses still in existence in the Ogden area, which the Hadley’s attribute to their dedication to excellence.Their reputation for trustworthiness and reliability make A.B. Hadley, Inc. the best choice for all your automotive needs.
As of 2020, The Lambert family has now joined the Hadley as the proud new owner of the business. The owner Tom Lambert comes from a long background in the Automotive industry and stepped in to purchase the business from Boyd as he was ready to retire.
“I have known of the Hadley family for years. As a matter of fact, my father had his first mechanic job working here at A.B. Hadley’s for Boyd back many years ago. I have spent my whole life working hard for my own families repair shop and have always admired the honest reputation that the Hadley family has had also. It just felt like the right thing to step in and keep the legacy alive as Boyd was no longer in proper health to run the business”.
Tom Lambert- Owner “I want to thank all of the long time Hadley customers for not only treating the Hadley family so good for all these years, but for being so welcoming and accepting of me. I definitely understand I have huge shoes to fill and look forward to earning and keeping your trust. I do not take this task lightly”. Tom Lambert- Owner
